WILTON — An Alabama man was injured Saturday when he was stabbed with a knife by his roommate, according to Wilton Police Chief Heidi Wilcox.

Wilcox said that at 3:13 p.m., officers responded to the Comfort Inn on Route 2 in Wilton when witnesses reported that two crew workers from the Rumford paper mill, who were staying in the same room, were having a physical altercation in the parking lot.

The fight escalated until Emmett Brown, 43, of Mobile, Alabama, stabbed his 55-year old co-worker, also from Mobile.

Wilcox said that the 55-year old man, whose name was not available, was taken to Franklin Memorial Hospital by ambulance for injuries that were not life-threatening.

Brown was charged with aggravated assault, a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
